European College of Liberal Arts in Belarus (ECLAB) allows students to obtain additional education within the Liberal Arts Education framework.
ECLAB is created as an informal alternative to the system of higher education existing in Belarus that inherited a range of shortcomings from the Soviet time. Despite all the changes over the past 20 years, the educational system is rigid. Teaching is performed in the monological way, while students are lacking personal choice at every stage of studying. The Liberal Arts Education model includes, on the contrary, an individual academic schedule, which encompasses both a wide selection of academic subjects and deep research in the chosen areas.
ECLAB is a partner of ECOLAS (The Consortium of European Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences).
